Mays and Foster fail to stop Cleveland
June 4, 1916 ...
The Cleveland Indians beat the Red Sox in front of a full house at League Field, 9 to 3. Bill Carrigan pinned his hopes on the submariner, Carl Mays and the tribe decided on Jim Bagby. Neither one stayed long, with Carl getting his walking papers
in the second inning. Bagby faded away in the fourth with the bases loaded in favor of Guy Morton, who held the Sox to two hits for the remainder of the game, without only one base runner reaching second base.
The Indians got out to a quick lead with three singles by Terry Turner, Tris Speaker and Elmer Smith. In the second the Sox tied it up on a double by Hobby and Janvrin's base hit. Two were put on the board by the Indians in both the second and
third innings. At the end of four innings the tribe led 6 to 3. The Indians put up three more in the eighth on singles by Graney and Speaker and doubles by Smith and Ike Howard. To make things worse both Dick Hoblitzell and Hal Janvrin were spiked. Jack Graney spiked
Janvrin when he was stealing second in the fourth inning and Chick Gandil spiked Hobby in the third. Both were hit on the left instep.
Rube Foster left the team to go to his home in Oklahoma after the game. He will rejoin the team in St. Louis. Harry Hooper and Jack Barry will join the club in Detroit.
